Join the Reading Public Library for an outdoor concert with Portrait In Jazz on October 7 at 5:00 pm
Reading, MA— On Thursday, October 7, grab a chair or blanket and head over to the Reading Public Library for an evening of music with our friends, Portrait In Jazz!
Portrait In Jazz’s performances at the Reading Public Library have been patron (and staff) favorites – this concert will feature a selection of time-honored jazz classics along with a couple of originals.
Portrait In Jazz is a dynamic, original jazz band committed to creating exciting and meaningful original jazz music with over fifty originals in their book and literally hundreds of jazz standards in their repertoire. The band features – Ashley Kamal: vocals, Gary Bohan: Flugelhorn, Chris Hildebrand: sax, Bob Abruzese: bass, Grant Smith: drums and Brad Ellenberg: guitar.
“Brad Ellenberg and his assembled team of multi-talented musicians have sure earned their chops. They’re great composers, arrangers and players who blend the best in traditional jazz with the kind of innovation that makes listening a real pleasure!”- Jordan Rich: WBZ Radio Boston
